It is Christ the King Sunday, – the last Sunday of the liturgical year. This is the last Sunday in Ordinary Time before Adventand the beginning of a new liturgical year. Last year I did some research on this celebration and wrote this reflection: Celebrating Christ the King . This year I thought I would add a prayer that helps me to focus on what Christ’s kingship is all about.
Let us praise Jesus Christ our king
for the wonderful things he has done.
He sends out his word to heal us.
He satisfies the thirsty with the water of life.
He fills the hungry with the abundance of his kingdom.
Let us praise Jesus, redeemer and renewer of all things.
May we always trust in his goodness and love,
And have faith in his grace and mercy,
May we always believe he cares about justice and righteousness,
And draw our life from his eternal purposes.
Let us praise Jesus Christ our king and saviour,
May we be filled with the hope and promise of his coming,
And give our lives to follow him.
May we be gripped by his kingdom ways,
And walk with assurance and trust into his grace and peace.
